hi there...i was in a strong mood for oil painting (on canvas), when i painted this digital piece, so I handled it in a very similar way as i wouldve done my oils. i even forgot in the middle of the painting process that im sitting infront of my computer, with a pen (wacom tablet), in my hand...:).
I went for suggestions, with casual, spontaneous brushwork, though I kept the setting/environment very traditional/classical. Ive put enough detail that was required to portray the scene that i had in my mind. My goal here, was to capture various kinds of textures and their look/feel (softness, hardness, reflective, shiny, glossy) and I really enjoyed doing every bit of it...:).
No reference used. This is all self-visualized/composed. All painted in artrage – tablet.

Thanks for coming in…cheers all.

Sweet lighting. Amazing that you are able to get that detailed without reference. I guess experience accounts for something. :D

I especially like how the light hits the blanket thingy. Good fabric texture.

When I grow up can I want to be a painter like you !!
Amazing textures and lighting friend. You really show off this program.

Waheed, that's just gorgeous! The contrast in textures is breath-taking. The glazed pottery feels glassy just to look at, while the velvety texture of the fabric looks soft and, well, velvety. And the rose petals are fantastic.

You are such a master of light, shadow, and surfaces! It's quite an honour to us here at Ambient Design that you've chosen to express yourself through ArtRage.

[edit - I meant Satiny, not Velvetty.... ]

thats some beatiful feedback...many thanks to all of u...:).

maror...its a simple of knife, nothing special a technique, i just use it randomly to get the effect i want. my approach is very direct (with every tool), just like doing a real painting. thanks for admiring it...:).

speggie...thank u mate...:).

D Akey...thanks...yes i agree on the experience part. i think my real painting experience plays quite a role in my digital work...:). and yes, its all from my mind, completely visualized. no reference. i used to do a lot of life drawings and paintings, with spot lights and a cut cardbox, all arranged. still do whenever i get time. i think that experience helps a lot as well.

Rkngel...thank u so much for your kind words...i would say u are already doing very good...ive seen your work...:).

AndyRage...thank u very much for all the compliment mate...:). actually im the one who feels honored, really. when i get such a nice response from the staff and from all the members here. it always feels great when u get admiration from others who know the things themselves.
thanks for providing this lovely software "Artrage". i find it best to express myself in there.

Peter Pinckney...thank u very much...:).

ENCHANTER...thank u very much for the appreciation...:). im not sure about exact hours, i worked for less than 2 days on and off. i think it took about to 5 hours in total to complete this. yes, its done without any reference.

friendly...thanks u mate...:).

philoponia....thanks a lot...:).

Fashmir...thank u so much...:).

Selby....many thanks...:).

hanzz...thank u so much...glad u like it mate. planet? ah let me remember...:).

Aged P...thank u very much phil...:). took about 5 hours in total, worked on and off for a couple of days. i just apply basic colors first, then put further applications of paint to build up forms. no special technique, i just follow my instincts...:).
hairan kon?...sorry i dont get it, what does that mean?

Weeks...thanks alot...sure mate...:).

lastly many thanks to all of u for all the time, appreciation and for all your kind words. this means a lot to me.

good day.

Waheed: ""My goad here, was to capture various kinds of textures and their look/feel (softness, hardness, reflective, shiny, glossy)""
Well, you accomplished your goal! It's all there...
It's your passion for painting that makes them in a class of their own... Very Richly presented. All of your work is a feast for the eyes.

Kind Regards,

Your abilities are quite obvious! Did you state that you work in both traditional and the digital materials?
I found that using traditional media really helped me to jump into the digital.
Keep up the wonderful work

Wow, Waheed.

I can't help but think of artistic wealth when I see colors and values like that -- a personal quirk I suppose, but I really like this one.

Looking at it summons up passages of Urdu poetry, and the smell of coffee.
